Welcome to Berwyn Baptist Church
We believe in the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments as verbally inspired by God, inerrant in their original writing, and that they are of supreme and final authority in faith and life.
We believe in one God eternally existing in three persons – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit – by whom and for whom were all things created and made; that He is Unchangeable, Everywhere Present, All Wise, and All Powerful; that He is Holy and Just and Loving and Merciful.
We believe that angels were created by God as His ministering spirits; that one angel of great position fell through pride, thereby introducing sin into the universe; that he became Satan, prince of the power and the air and head of this present world system, who wages constant warfare against the work of God.
We believe that man was created by God in His image; that he was tempted by Satan and has sinned against God’s command, thereby incurring not only physical death, but also that spiritual death which is eternal separation from God; that all human beings are born with sinful natures, and upon reaching the age of understanding and moral responsibility, become sinners also in thought, word, and deed.
We believe that Jesus Christ was begotten by the Holy Spirit, was born of the virgin Mary, and is True God and True Man; that he was tempted in all points, like as we, yet without sin; that He was crucified and died for our sins; that He arose bodily from the dead; that He ascended into Heaven and lives there now as High Priest and Advocate for all believers.
We believe that all who receive by faith the Lord Jesus Christ as Savior are justified on the ground of His shed blood, are born again of the Holy Spirit, and are made children of God and joint heirs with Christ; that the true church is composed of all believers and forms the spiritual body of Christ of which He is head; that it is the responsibility of all who are saved to seek to win others to Christ and to be conformed to His image.
We believe that God the Holy Spirit brings conviction to sinners; that upon their receiving the Lord Jesus Christ as Savior, He captures them into the Body of Christ; that He dwells in believers, counsels them, comforts and guides them, and conforms them to the image of Christ.
We believe in “that blessed hope”, the personal and imminent return of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ; in bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust; in the everlasting blessedness of the saved with our Lord; in the everlasting doom of the lost with Satan and his unholy angels in the “Lake of Fire”.
